Trivia

Fat Man and Little Boy

The previous Hollywood film with the same theme and the same main character was 'Fat Man and Little Boy', from 1989.

Gary Oldman

While in this film Gary Oldman plays the American president Harry S. Truman, he previously played British prime minister Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour (2017) also set during the same war. That movie competed against Dunkerque (2017) during the award season in 2018, and earned Oldman a Best Actor Academy Award; Nolan was nominated for Best Director.

Charles Roven managed to intrigue Nolan

The film's producer Charles Roven pitched the film to the director Christopher Nolan and the producer Emma Thomas by telling them about the autobiographical book named "American Prometheus". Nolan was so intrigued by the story that decided to read it. After that, he took the job to direct the film.
